Documentation of outpatient treatment of Paget's disease in Westphalia-Lippe. Descriptive analysis of statutory health insurance data for the year 2005
Abstract
Goal. Inpatient health care data are often used as a source of information for health reporting in Germany, despite the fact that a lot of diseases are predominantly treated in the outpatient sector. This study provides a first overview of the outpatient care situation in relation to Paget's disease. Method. Outpatient care data from the Association of Statutory Health Insurance Physicians constituted the database for a descriptive analysis, capturing the state of medical care for the rare rheumatic illness Paget's disease (Osteodystrophia deformans) in the region of East Westphalia-Lippe in 2005. Results. While the health report of North Rhine-Westphalia documents a total of 56 cases of M. Paget discharged from hospital for the year 2003, 166 patients suffering from Paget's disease consulted an practice-based physician in 2005 in the district of Detmold alone. The latter figure corresponds to 8.0 treated patients per 100.000 inhabitants. The treatment rates of men and women are comparable. The probability of treatment increases with advancing age. On average, patients with Paget's disease are 65.6 years old (SD=15.4 years). Almost 90% of the diagnoses of Paget's disease are classified as M88.9 according to ICD 10; more exact localisations are provided only for relatively few cases. Nearly a quarter of the cases (24.1%) are treated by general practitioners and internists. Anaesthetists treated 17.5% of the patients and orthopaedists 16.9%. In addition, ophthalmologists treat a considerable proportion of cases (12.0%). Conclusion. Consistent with the rareness of Paget's disease, the treatment data are as low as expected. However, the results show that routinely collected health care data allow insights into morbidity structures within the outpatient sector. It follows that for statutory health insurants (approximately 90% of the population) there should be an extension of health reporting to diseases that are mainly treated in outpatient settings.
